Brodie Castle

Set in parkland 3 miles (5 km) to the west of Forres in Moray, Brodie Castle dates from the mid 16th Century (1567), although the Brodie family were first granted land here by Malcolm IV much earlier in 1160. Damaged in 1645 during the campaigns of the Marquis of Montrose, Brodie is a Z-plan structure with additions made in the 17th and 19th centuries. The building, with its contents and 70 ha (175 acres) of policies, was transferred into the care of the National Trust for Scotland in 1980. It contains fine French furniture, English, Continental and Chinese porcelain and a fine collection of paintings ranging from 17th-century Dutch to 18th-19th century English watercolours and Scottish colourists. There is a extensive daffodil collection and an attractive woodland walk.
